Ten up: Staffin’s online biz listings reaches double figures!

STAFFIN’S biz listings have welcomed the 10th local business to join the burgeoning online directory.

MacKenzie Stores, which is a shop, hot food takeaway – and the only fuel station in the Taobh Sear – is the latest business to be featured on the Staffin Community Trust website http://staffin-trust.co.uk/shops-2


The SCT want to help promote ALL the businesses in the community and boost the local economy by promoting them online via its popular website. SCT had more than 3,600 page views in the last four weeks and more than 1,000 users on the website, from all over the world. MacKenzie Stores joins nine other local businesses on the website, including the other main shop in the district, Staffin Stores.

If more businesses join then it encourages visitors and local people to use the website as a one-stop online source of information with a range of content including Staffin news, events, heritage and businesses/services. Contact details, images and details are all featured in the local business profiles. The Staffin Business Directory showcases just some of the wide range of businesses from shops, places to eat and stay and purchase gifts and specific services.

For an annual £20 fee Staffin businesses/services enjoy the exposure of being published on a hugely popular website which attracts hits from all over the world. That fee is used to pay for the domain hosting and website maintenance.

If anybody is interested in having their business featured, contact Hugh Ross at SCT on 562 464, e-mail staffin.ldo@gmail.com or call in to the office, Monday to Friday. The business directory also features:
